bad idea. >> sabrina, this is a unique moment in the history of energy exploration. we are leading the way in terms of oil delivery through the pipe line and oil and fracing and that whole bit. we are the center of the universe and should exploit that. >> that's why the library washington post critized president obama when he rejected the pipe line and said it is national insanity. it may not be the magic bullet to energy independence. but economic is crystal clear. we have a sluggish american economy and this would bring private and sector jobs and th would trickle through the economy as a result of the pipe line. i think that the post is right. >> john tamne. >> a am all for key stone. don't create a false narrative as a result of it. we are a rich country precisely because we divide up work around the world . we import tv and bananas and oil is no different. the idea of walling off the economy from foreign oil is false . >> understood. but bill baldwin. there are moments when one region leads the another in term of oil exploration and right now it is the united states and right

clean energy. but after 14 years, and over $5 billion, there's a shakeup in the management. amy, let me ask you, why is what they're trying to do there so hard to achieve? >> nuclear fusion, which is what they're trying to do, is one of the sort of holy grails of science. it's something generations of physicists have tried and failed to do. from a science perspective, this is an incredibly cool operation. they are directing 192 lasers. collectively, this is the world's largest laser, at a single capsule the size of one peppercorn. i love that. the idea is that if you can do this right, for one fraction of a second, you would create such heat and such pressure on this capsule, that hydrogen, a capsule full of hydrogen, the hydrogen atoms would fuse together. this is nuclear fusion. not to be confused with nuclear fish shon that happens at power plants every day. this is a difficult thing to do. >> what makes it so difficult? >> the hardest thing is getting perfect symmetry. what they want is for this capsule, this tiny, tiny thing, to shrink from 1/60th of its size. that's if you took a

the marin energy authority program and the differences between that program and ours. just quickly for purposes of review, it's mostly differences associated with the resource mix just like we're going to talk about today. the fixed costs for operating their program, their program design. their program does not include an additional low-income discount. our program does. so, we have additional subsidies and costs that we need to cover. and it does not repay any of their start-up costs. our program does. they have a very distinctly different customer base than our san francisco program opportunity. they have a greater number of large users than commercial customers. they are also serving their municipal, for example, their municipal government throughout the county. our program does not include our municipal services because we provide service to the municipal government through our hetch hetchy power program. and the market prices for the power that they've procured are different in that they executed a contract with shell under different market conditions with the passage of time. so,

it cut the horses out of the equation. cable cars were a lot more energy efficient. they were very popular in cities all across the united states, including chicago. and they really took over in san francisco because cable cars could climb hills were horses couldn't, opening up development in parts of the city where before there hadn't been any. but cable cars had their drawbacks, too. a cablecar can only go nine miles an hour, as fast as the cable under the street pulling it. cables have a hard time pulling backwards, changing direction, investing in the infrastructure to put the cable in the street is very costly. so you have a lot of upfront costs. if a company wanted to run just one cable car, they had to start up the power house to get the cable car rung through the street. so it energy efficient issues as well. this is an interest street car. that was the new modern, exciting form of transportation. it was very energy efficient. each street car only used enough energy from the wires that it needed. it didn't have to run a power house. people were a little scared of them at fi

down, what they're talking -- they're talking the base price of energy. they're not incorporating how much they're going to spend on marketing on the price. not administrative costs. i'm not sure that they're including everything that needs to be incorporated into that final price. so, if we're here today trying to figure out what pg&e's final price is going to be, we don't know what that is. we know what their base price is going to be based on just the energy, but there's a lot of other costs that get added into that price. and, so, i don't think that they're going to be at that $6 price with all respect to the puc staff that they're claiming. the lowest they will be i honestly believe they will be higher than that price because you have to incorporate these other factors. there are issues with that program just based on the initial reading of it. they are basically what they're trying to do is take the excess rpf they have right now because they have to be above 20% to get to 25%. they have to take that excess and they're basically going to take that sliver out and sell it to c
